Forum: GratefulDead Subject: Blue moon over Buffalo

I got really lucky last night with a damn good view of the eastern sky. The Blue moon was pretty freakin huge and I waited until I had the shot at around 9 pm. I had no idea how fast the moon really moves across the sky - Its a little shaky at spots because twice in 7 minutes it completely moved out of the frame. I took it with an Samsung HD camcorder with a 65x Optical zoom Schneider Kreuznach lens wide open all the way(which also accounts for the shakiness in spots) on a tripod in my backyard. You can see Tycho's crater incredibly well, which is the huge one at the bottom... Here she is

Very cool. One small quibble. You said "I had no idea how fast the moon really moves across the sky", might have been better stated as your perceived realization of the speed and velocity of the earth turning on its axis, while focusing your attention on the moon. Thanks for sharing and making it Dead related. Peace.
